12 crazy Premier League stats IBTimes UK

Well that brings an end to our live Premier League coverage. We'll have all the reaction from around the grounds across the next 24 hours. We're back tomorrow with the Manchester derby from the Etihad Stadium. But until then, it's goodbye.


Full time: Crystal Palace 0-1 Tottenham Hotspur

The gap is back to four points in the title race and there is no downplaying how significant a night this could be for Tottenham. Eight wins in a row for the north Londoners delivered by a superb goal by Christian Eriksen. Neither team were near their best but a moment of quality separated the sides.


Into the final minute of stoppage time and the game is up for Palace. Free-kick to Tottenham inside their opponents half and they should run down the clock from here.


Trippier on for Dele Alli with just over two minutes of added time to go. Sure Jon Moss will be adding all this on. Probably.


Spurs keeping the ball in the corner in an effort to run down the clock. Palace frustrated but this is just what the visitors want. Looking like a vital three points for Pochettino


Seven minutes added on at Selhurst Park. Primarily down to the Mamadou Sakho injury earlier in the half.


Christian Eriksen rejoices after netting a vital goal in the title race.

Into the closing minutes at Selhurst Park. Can Palace grab a late leveller and spark scenes of celebration in west London? Tottenham holding their own so far.


GOAL! Crystal Palace 0-1 Tottenham Hotspur (Christian Eriksen)

A dreadful game illuminated by one of the goals of the year. The Dane hits it from fully 30 yards and it takes on bounce before flying beyond Hennessey. Not at their best Spurs but boy they have come up with a crucial goal at a vital time.


Dier heads goalwards but high and wide from a near-post effort. Tottenham still to create anything meaningful since that Alli chance early in the half.


Eric Dier tackles Jason Puncheon during a frustrating night for Spurs.

Eric Dier


Tottenham much the better side now in this second period, but it must be said they're still struggling to purposely break through the Palace rearguard.


Chance for Tottenham, Walker's cross picks out Alli and he side-foots wide of goal. Best chance for either side by some distance.


Back underway at Selhurst Park. No changes for Palace alongside the two made by Tottenham.


Two half time changes for Spurs in an effort to introduced some impetus. Wanyama and Dembele make way, for Son and Sissoko. Not sure how that affects the balance of the side but there is certainly more attacking players to call on.


Half time: Crystal Palace 0-0 Tottenham

Very little to get excited about in that first half. Spurs huffed and puffed and while they nullified Palace's multiple threats they barely had a sight at goal. Not a proper chance created between the two of them.


Harry Kane has cut a frustrated figure tonight.

Harry Kane


Half a chance for Palace as Townsend rides a few challenges and lashes over the bar. Tottenham far from their best tonight and look like anything but champions-elect.


Victor Wanyama walking a disciplinary tightrope and avoids being red carded when he slides in on Townsend, having already been booked earlier in the half. The Kenyan is fortunate there as Jon Moss just has a word with the midfielder.


Christian Eriksen has two chances to dig out a cross for Tottenham but after his first effort is only half cleared, but his second effort is clutched by Hennessey.


Nothing to worry about from a Palace point of view so far. Kyle Walker had a raid down the right but it came to little, and now the England man lashes the ball over the bar.


Christian Benteke upset his former club Liverpool with a weekend double at Anfield and he almost adds to his tally when he shoots goalwards but Lloris gets down well to save.


Intriguing opening at Selhurst Park.

Mousa Dembele


Palace doing much of the running in the opening 10 minutes but not much in the way of chances for either side.
